There are those who think that Governor Rick Snyder has been made to bear too much of the blame for the mess in Flint.

The governor certainly didn’t set out to poison the water, though, as Harry Truman said the buck stops on the desk of the top man.
But there is an area where the governor may not have gotten enough criticism – and that is some of his policy choices in public education. The worst of these may be the Education Achievement Authority, or the EAA.
It was supposed to “fix” Detroit’s worst-performing schools.
